The cape, though once a staple for Halloween costumes and vampires, has recently been given a major upgrade. 
In the past few years, high fashion designers have incorporated capes into their most formal gowns, either as part of the dress or as an added accessory. Indeed, a cape, without a doubt, adds intrigue and drama to any outfit.

It holds a certain aura to it and the women wearing one certainly exudes all the powerful vibes. While power dressing is certainly here to stay and there are no two ways about it, Cape Dresses seem to be a perfect substitute for anyone who wishes to serve some empowering women vibes. A dress, of course, adds a certain feminine touch against a silhouette that's otherwise dominated by a coat and a pant.

Whoever said capes are reserved for superheroes and superheroes alone should check out its new obsession in the fashion world.
